AVL introduces new-generation software tools

AVL has announced the latest generations of its software tools AVL Team Suite – AVL Santorin MX 2 and AVL Concerto 5. AVL states that the packages ‘interlock perfectly’, which allows development organizations to integrate test data across department boundaries.

In view of the growing level of vehicle connectivity, AVL states that system thinking, along with multidisciplinary collaboration, has become the key to fast and innovative development processes. With the new software AVL claims it can enable a uniform evaluation of heterogeneous data from the simulation and measuring environment. These can be interlinked and enriched with additional information such as videos or GPS tracks, allowing engineers to filter out what is essential from the torrent of available test data, and implement well-founded decisions without major efforts.

AVL Santorin MX 2 harmonizes the test data created across the organization during the server upload. Specific formats, sample rates, units or designations of different data sources are automatically standardized, facilitating the direct evaluation and comparison of simulation and measuring results.

Via AVL Concerto 5, data can be automatically pre-analyzed while they are being loaded to the AVL Santorin MX 2 server. AVL states that this makes it possible, for example, to define beforehand which criteria the data must satisfy before they can be saved. This feature facilitates the usage of AVL Concerto 5 as a reporting dashboard, which delivers reports at the very moment the data become available. Whether users are dealing with evaluations of particular test campaigns or the status quo of an entire test facility, AVL Santorin MX 2 and AVL Concerto 5 will provide access to exact analyses, regardless of location.
